I have issues. I know I have them because I have had the registration page for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon open since yesterday. I have been staring at this page trying with everything I’ve got to NOT register for this race. I called Doug yesterday to try and talk me out of it. He gave me all the reasons I’ve told myself already why I shouldn’t do it. He thought he talked me down off the ledge.
Since I still have the registration page open, he clearly did not.
The fact that all I’m hearing about is the W&D (not just on the blogs, but friends registering too) is just making it that much harder.
Saying I loved this half marathon is an understatement. I LOVED this half marathon! Plus, if I did it, I would get my Coast to Coast medal…awesome!
Reasons I shouldn’t do this race:
As I’ve mentioned, I’m getting married. Our honeymoon is in August (at the end of which I’m doing the Dumbo Double Dare – I have issues, remember?) My honeymoon is maxing out practically all of my vacation time. It is also maxing out
a lot most all of my finances. So, no money and no time equals no race, right?
WRONG! I really really really really REALLY want to do this race! I want to run it so bad, that I’m willing to fly down Friday night, run on Saturday night and then fly back on Sunday night…and without Doug! …although he actually has off that Monday, whereas I do not, stupid teachers and they’re 100 days off.
My only hope is that I hold off long enough that the race gets sold out. But not running in it will make me soooooooo sad. Hmmmm, maybe I can cash in my “Spring Training” trip and go with my dad in November! Doug can’t say no to my father daughter annual trip to Florida! (I will explain that in another post).
Being a “responsible” adult sucks, but I may have found a loop hole!
